    and Galdron,
    have you tried a distance test on said BB :?
    as in, it is acceptable, no hang ups when it is over 6' away

    or does it just cause havoc wheneverit is on in the same house as the PC ?
    It is causing interference in my whole house (condo) which is 1400 square feet.

    All but to my Mac.

    My guess is......

    Magnetic Induction...... i would imagine when your phone goes off near the usb device, the power spikes and the mainboard turns off the port (or similar)... in which case is a good thing rather than something going bang

    Just a thought

    I had a situation when i had a nextel phone back in the day where just before it rang up until i hung up the phone, any speakers would pop and crackle so i know these new phones can make an impact on electronic devices. my guess is the blackberry messing with the signals in the other devices. FCC approved my arse!

    Yes certian frequencies can interfere with speakers. Mostly GSM does this for cell phones. The problem wouldnt be the phone in this case it would be the motherboard since it has to be able to accept frequencies that pass through it. Faulty or poorly made.

    My conclusion is that the Blackberry shouldn't be doing what it is. I guess that it is defective or about to fail.

    I have had the same experience as mungyun with mobile phones, but they had to be pretty close to the system. I have also seen a desk fan on the way out kill CRT screens.

    IIRC the Blackberry is quite powerful in terms of range, so I would expect a defective one to cause problems over quite a wide area?

    It's brand new, but I am going to exchange it and find out. Strange how it has no ill effect on my Mac. ????

    I guess if I bought an I-Phone it would mess with the Mac and my PC's would be fine.

    Hi Nic~

    I used to work in retail electronics (IT Department). Our experience was that over 70% of stuff that "went wrong" did so in the first seven days, so "new" doesn't always mean "good".

    As for the MAC I would suspect that it is some sort of frequency thing?
